Operations and Field Offices The vast majority of the Department's energy and physical research and development, environmental restoration, [[Page 214]] and waste management activities are carried out by contractors who operate Government-owned facilities. Management and administration of Government-owned, contractor-operated facility contracts are the major responsibility of the Department's five operations offices and three special purpose field offices. Department operations offices provide a formal link between Department headquarters and the field laboratories and other operating facilities. They also manage programs and projects as assigned from lead headquarters program offices. Routine management guidance, coordination, oversight of the operations and field offices, and daily specific program direction for the operations offices is provided by the appropriate Assistant Secretary, Office Director, or program officer. The service center and eight site offices are part of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and provide operations oversight and contract administration for NNSA site activities, acting as the agency's risk acceptance for the site. The site offices are responsible for the following functions: the safe and secure operation of facilities under the purview of NNSA; supporting NNSA programs to ensure their success in accordance with their expectations; and ensuring the long- term viability of the site to support NNSA programs and projects.
